    Anyone who doubts Rand needs to listen to this.

    The nominee has to be less evasive with his non-answers then.

    Rand: You can't end a war up here on the hill after it's already over. (paraphrasing)

    key word...RIGHT...yeah, he has the right.....just because he has the right, doesn't mean you roll over and agree to it.

    Yes he has but he also said he doesn't have a firm rule. Also CIA Director is not a Cabinet member. I'm not sure if Rand makes a distinction though.

    on Martial Law -

    pay attention when others say, "the battlefield is coming to America"

    great point, Rand
    The bigger government gets, the smaller I wish it was.

    I think Rand realizes this is a policy which threatens our liberties. Is Chuck Hagel for example going to be able to do much harm to us? Especially when deep down, Rand probably agrees with maybe a 3rd of Hagel's ideas.

    I just read some of the comments over there. If ever the Democrats were the party of hypocrisy, it's today.

    What's scary is that there are conservatives on twitter blasting Rand for a "publicity stunt."

    I think Mike Lee will be joining Rand soon. He just questioned Eric Holder about drone strikes in a committee hearing:

    Who is FOR killing Americans on American soil without trial?

    Is that a Democrat position or a Republican position?
    Let's move forward to the Constitution.. I am the new GOP. I stand with Rand.

    Dupe post, so I'll change the text:

    Is it the evil party? Or the stupid party?

    Or one of those collaborations that are both evil & stupid?

    Has Rand gotten any sleep lately? Surely writing this speech or preparing his remarks took a long time, and he's been in Illinois and New York the last couple nights with loads of appearances.

    Can you kill an American on American soil? (with a drone) paraphrasing

    Brennan: There's a process

    Rand :Yeah, there is a process, but it is NOT due process.

    Great stuff Rand . . .

    It's funny how many times I've seen people say "This is the only issue I agree with Rand" on so many different civil liberty and war issues.

    Apparently, it's a position of power, so if one's party is in power, it's okay. At least that's the conclusion I've reached from reading today's comments and remembering comments from before 2008.

    There are some of those, thank goodness. But there are many more comments attempting to reduce this to partisanship.

    Justin Raimondo is calling this Rand's shining moment, while some on the right are blasting Rand for not doing this to Hagel...Interesting to see the wide swath of reactions.

    I'd have to agree. The ones blasting him from the right about why he didn't do this to Hagel is just cover for them not giving a damn whether drone strikes can happen to americans. Heck, even Hannity was all over Rand's nuts for his standing up against this abuse so those alleged right wing hacks can get F'd.

    For those of you who don't want to take the time to look up your individual Senators:

    (202) 224-3121 is the Senate switchboard.

    Just call the number, let them know what state you live in, and they'll transfer you to the appropriate offices.

    (202) 224-3121

    That's why they spew such venom at Rand. It's a subconscious reaction to pointing out their gross hypocrisy.

    On to the NDAA.
